Last-minute notice: Got plans for tomorrow at 7 a.m.? This Friday -- United Nations' International Day of the World's Indigenous People --- the First Peoples Worldwide (FPW) organization is offering a free webinar on Free andPrior Informed Consent (FPIC). The announcement caught our eye here at Pebble Watch due to an article at Indian Country Today Media Network, which makes a direct connection between FPIC and the Pebble mine issue.
The webinar focuses "how Indigenous Peoples can hone their knowledge and skills about free, prior and informed consent and be better prepared to face the challenges of development in their communities." It will feature an online panel, with opportunities for questions/answers afterwards through online chat or their Twitter feed.
When: Friday, August 9 at 7 a.m. Alaska Time.
How: Preregister here
